A day late publishing this post, but I had it written yesterday!
Today marks 27 weeks and I am starting to feel a little more pregnant. I waddle, I really don’t like wearing anything other than slip ons, and my legs are catching it from the instant weight gain. I weigh 121lbs with a total gain of 16lbs. I managed to put on the last 4 pounds in a week! Now that’s not a bad thing, I’m just amazed. I didn’t get a chance to prepare or anything. I know that if you should gain more than 4lbs in a week you should contact your doctor, but I gained exactly 4lbs so I’m fine. I already went up a bra cup, now I will need to go up a size too. I’m on the last hook and it’s still tight on me. I just bought new bras around Christmas and now I need to buy some more! When I lay down it feels like there are bricks smooshing me into the bed. Each night I feel like I need a full body massage. I’m starting to breath heavier as well. I’m starting to lack energy and I’m trying to cope. It’s always nice to relax, but I have a lot of business related tasks on my todo list. There’s no way that they can be put on the back burner. At any rate, I am getting enough rest. When my body starts to give up, I lay down immediately. JT is definitely getting bigger. I can press on my stomach and feel him. His movements are also getting much stronger. I can’t believe there’s a baby inside!
I’m just enjoying being pregnant. All of the changes going on with my body are more amazing than a pain. Next week I’ll be starting my 3rd trimester! This is all happening so fast! We also have a doctor visit on Valentine’s Day, hoping we can see JT’s face again!
So this is what pregnancy is all about…I’m getting to the good stuff now!
